If you still have some backstraps in the freezer it’s time to get them out and whip up something tasty on the grill.
Combine venison, tasty bacon and a little spice to kick things up and you’ll have a mouth-watering treat after a few minutes on a hot grill. Don’t overcook it! If you do, your family might make you sleep out in the yard for messin’ up something so good.
